Antenna Wire Winders
Pricing is per Winder (1)
I have spent years searching for the ideal way of winding up antenna wire for use in the field. These special winders are just about perfect! Lightweight and with an elastic fastener to secure the wire, they are quick and easy to use.
Wire winders ensure tangle-free aerials and rapid deployment - perfect! Great for SOTA, caravanning and DXpeditions!
Use a figure-of-eight winding technique which helps to ensure no kinks in the wire.
We recommend three winders for a dipole fed with RG174 (one for each half of the dipole and one for the co-ax and back guy). Two winders are usually adequate for a dipole fed with RG58 (cable coiled separately).
Each winder weighs 1.25 oz (36g). Length 24.5 cm (9.75 inches).
If you are making antennas using our Wirewinders, consider investing in one of our rugged antenna bags - designed for use with Wirewinders.

The antenna wire winder is perfect for my antenna storage and travel.
I like making wire antennas and they always seem to get tangled. The wire winders stop all that and when it comes to deploying the wire they help in not generate more tangles - assuming you wind the wire in the approved figure of 8 method!
These are the most practical .. You can use them for antenna wire , Guy lines , counter poise wire etc.
I have purchased a number of these,really useful for keeping wire aerials and guys neat and tidy.
These little wire winders from Sotabeams are elegantly simple but prevent the aggravation of tangled messes when you're out in the field erecting your antennas. I purchased multiple of them in different sizes to keep antennas and coax ready to be deployed in the field without the hassle of untangling every three feet when you attempt to manage wires any other way. If you're completely cheap I guess you could make them but they are reasonably priced, color-coded and ready out of the box. A real no-brainer.
I recently built an interesting dipole (wire from sotabeam) and needed it to be light weight and easy to deploy wen portable. I have in the past had all sorts of tangles and knots so I wanted an easy and cheap way to store my antennas. I bought these winders and I have never looked back. Easy to wind, easy to unwind, nice and light and good quality. All my wire antennas are now on these winders and makes life so much easier.
Very practical, they have the ideal shape for strings and portable antennas.
I have about ten now!
These wire winders the best thing since sliced bread. Be sure to view the Sotabeams video about them to get the most from them. I have recommended these to several ham friends and they all are amazed and pleased with how well they work. They have thought of everything with these winders. They make it so much easier to deploy wire antennas, counterpoises, guy ropes, etc. Keep spares handy. You'll think of many uses for them.
Those winders are toppie !
